    @gcreardon: Moving is giving us a chance to do that. I don't have a lot of that in my clothing, though, because I already purged 90% of it because I was losing weight and it didn't fit.

    Also, I now know my weight loss pattern, and it's a downward staircase. Sudden loss of 3-5 pounds over 2-3 days, then two to three weeks at a lower weight, then down again, plateau again. So I can be pretty patient through a plateau.

    Whew. It's been a very busy work week for me, and I think it will continue that way. I haven't really taken the time to plan meals well or cook much, so I've been getting take-out more than usual. Plus I celebrated my 49th birthday on Monday which involved a good bit of sugar and fat. The scale actually read 193 over the weekend, but today was back to 195.5. I'm not sure that I will be getting back to my very best healthy behaviors right away, but I am giving myself a break during this busy work time. I'll do the best I can without losing my mind. :)

    @VeggieMeg71 , I say celebrations like a birthday definitely warrant some extra, too. Happy belated birthday day! You are still amazing and seeing how far you have come since January inspires me!

    I also had something to celebrate this week (chosen to be the sole student liaison to an ABA committee) and definitely celebrated with some bad eating. But we are human and celebrations involve so many of the really good tasting, bad for you foods. lol

    @gcreardon , thanks and congratulations to you on your liaison position! I'm giving myself a "grace period" for my whole birthday week and then recommitting to healthier eating on Monday! I've at least managed to keep up with some kind of workout schedule! I rediscovered Leslie Sansone's Walk at Home videos, so that change of pace has renewed my motivation for working out a bit. :)

    Start: 262.6
    Goal: 170
    May 2020 loss: 3.8

    06/01/20: 258.8

    I am going to stop questioning my body and let it say it lost whatever it wants. :D Guess it was super tired of the extra weight and is kicking it to the curb.

    This past week was a rollercoaster of emotions. In addition to the good news (and my mom's pet sitting client, our U.S. House Rep, saying she would speak to me anytime about gun reform and inviting me to her Washington office), I found out my ankle ligaments are as lax as before. I'm hyper flexible, so he wasn't surprised. Guess I'll just have ankle issues forever! One more reason to lose the weight!

    We put it on one pound at a time, we can take it off one pound at a time! Slow and steady wins the race, and I bet by now you're seeing some changes!

    I'm back now from my dad's and he has a new front plants on his two new gardens. Ripped it all out and started new and added to the other side a new bed and half. What a job! 7 hours later and it was done. So I kinda ate what I wanted on the weekend needed a break. Now back to the grind.

    Hello all, I tried joining you all earlier this year, but quarantine hit and it didn't help my weight or mental state. I have really been struggling. Things are slowly getting back to normal and I am mentally doing better, but now I have even more weight to lose. Yesterday was day 1 (again) and it went ok. I need accountability and support though. I am looking forward to getting to know you all.

    SW (6/15/20): 223.5
    GW: under 200
    UGW: 160

    TOM starts tomorrow. Going to try to get through without falling off the bandwagon.

    Guad, I wish I felt like I was back in my twenties, I spent the day doing chores up at camp and feel like I got run over. Old age sucks.
